MODERATE ISLAM?

Reader comment on item: Are the Palestinians the World's Most Radicalized Population?
in response to reader comment: MODERATE ISLAM?

Submitted by Ianus (Poland), Dec 30, 2005 at 17:03

Much as I admire Dr Pipes I also find his notion of 'moderate Islam' a little perplexing, a contradiction in terms. It sounds to me like 'a vegetarian crocodile'. I certainly do wish to see one day such a species to evolve and supplant today's carnivorous crocodiles that have been imported en mass to the West with all the necessary testimonials to the effect they are mild , peace-loving and almost grass-eating. But the daily experience and some reflcetion teaches something quite opposite and that's why I agree with Donvan and others that there is no moderate Islam. All they believe in contradicts such a notion. And even if it is possible it is at best a heresy only hypocrites can openly profess. You mustn't be Allah's slave (Muslim) part time and luke-warmly . His slaves must be fanatical to the utmost and ruthless against all Allah's enemies and blasphemers and hypocrites in your own ranks. I could agree there are moderate Muslims, if it could be proved Muhammad was a moderate Muslim.

There is one more number to make these 10% of Moslems so catastrophic. In Europe these 10 % of Muslim population are supported by more than 10% of EU traitors and their lackeys who have sold Europe to Islam. Unless you have a dhimmi-minded power elite in your country the situation is far from being hopeless even if the numbers of Muslims per square foot increase.
